Al-Qadim: The Genie’s Curse

04/09/2009

Guest review by E_net4. I suppose he also wanted a share of the fame and untold riches this blog gives to its writers and about which Crazy couldn’t keep his mouth shut. Now I’ll probably be flooded with guest reviews. But hey, enjoy. Just so you know, I also play all those guest reviewed games just for the experience. Gotta play ’em all!

A side note: I’m just another internet commoner, I assume. I have played many oldies in the past and I looked forward to hearing more from Let’s Play Oldies. I haven’t played this game in the old times, but it was rather enjoyable to give it a try. Anyways, here’s my Live Space: http://net4games.spaces.live.com

Al-Qadim: The Genie’s Curse is an action RPG developed by Cyberlore Studios and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc in 1994. It seems to be based on an Advanced Dungeons and Dragons campaign setting. Anyways, the story is focused on a young corsair in the world of Al-Qadim (think of the thousand and one nights kind of place).

The main menu is quite promising.

War of the Lance

16/08/2009

Sorry for the radio silence, people. When you allow yourself a break, it’s hard to pick the work up again. But, back in business for now. Also, new banner, made by Anonymous1157. Thanks!

War of the Lance (labeled as “AD&D War of the Lance”) is a turn-based strategy game set in the AD&D universe of Dragonlance. I’m not familiar with the setting and I apologize to the fans for all the big mistakes I will make in this review. Feel free to correct me. The story goes kinda like this: evil country (Highlord) invades good countries (Whitestone). You are Whitestone, fight back. This being AD&D, there are some subtleties though. But that will require quite some space to explain. *clears throat*
